    A friend's 7 year old daughter taught me how to

    play chess! And then I taught my own teenager how to play. I rarely won against my pint-size teacher, and now my son takes me to the cleaners as well. Kids are brutal sometimes, haha! I start every game with the statement "Ok, no more chances for you!" But we both know I'm...

    Ah, When It Started

    I remember learning chess from reading it in a book, and making my own set out of K'nex and a pizza box I checkered in with a pencil. Eventually I got a glass set and I love it. Still one of my favorite games!

    Chess Is Perfect.

    To me, playing chess is the ultimate experience. It is 64 perfect squares, and 32 pieces, that can never change, they can never be altered, the knight will always move in an "L" shape, the bishop will always move diagonally, etc. Whenever I do anything, whether it's watch a movie...
